I don't know about anyone else, but this really ruins the flow of gameplay for me. I've died far too many times in shootouts because of the game switching my guns for me.

I would like to see a weapons trunk or display wall for the high-end apartments or garages where you can select just of one your purchased weapons for each slot.

Please at least add a settings option to only have 1 of each type of weapon. The current system is just cluttered and clumsy.

If you are on a mission, using the assault SMG, kill an npc, then run over his body, it will automatically switch out your weapon for whatever weapon he had. Which is very frustrating.

I understand that this won't sound like a big deal, but trust me. When you play on free aim plus hard difficulty, this is a big problem.

Works fine. I'm happy they used it. Looks like you need to practice using it.

It annoys me also. Why can't I select a default weapon for a slot? i.e. carbine, ap pistol etc.

They had it perfect in GTA IV. There was no reason to change it.

Add a classic weapon inventory option and there, problem solved. Players who like the wheel can just keep it default.

Absolutely no to one weapon from each slot. Sometimes I want to switch to a different weapon from the same slot.

Like the weapon wheel but hate how it resets every so often. Like how someone above me said they need to make it so you can choose your default weapon slot to be the Carbine, SMG etc then the system would be perfect

Would be nice to see a way to set a Favorite Weapon in each Cathegory.

 

Let's say you have the AP Pistol active in the Pistol-Cathegory, Click (so and so) to set it as Favorite.

 

Then the Favorite will always be the first one chosen in each cathegory.

 

 

Would also be nice if it remembered what weapon you had active before entering a Car.

having to carry around every weapon is pretty silly and can be annoying

I just make it a point to set the right ones before going into a fight

even dumped a bunch of them but enemies all use the basic weapons so I picked them up pretty soon anyway

 

would prefer the old way of doing it actually where you could have only 1 weapon in each slot and picking up a new one replaced the old.

 

but not that big of a deal if you ask me

Really needs the option to set a default weapon in each slot and for driving.

It's be nice to have the option of setting your preferred weapon for each slot.
Even if it has to be done at the start of each session.

I just hating having to manually re-equip my AP Pistol or Carbine each time.

A favourite or preferred weapon in each slot is a pretty good idea. Also, the weapon not switching when you pick one up off the ground would be good as well. Overall, i like the weapon wheel & dont have any issues with playing on hard & free aim.

OP I think you're used to the slow-mo of SP. Don't worry, you'll be switching weapons faster than Usain Bolt's legs soon.

So basically people don't want a feature that would be optional...?

The only thing annoying for me is always making sure I'm on the right handgun.I keep dropping all my pistols because I don't want any other one besides the .50 cal...but I keep picking them up again in random matches.

I agree that the wheel can be cumbersome to work with when you have every weapon I'm the game, I've died a handful of times because I couldn't switch to the gun I needed fast enough.

This idea of setting a preferred gun in each class to always be in the front, sounds perfect to me. Add to that I'd like to be able to drop some of my guns and preferably never pick them up again, and this thread seems to have covered everything. I just hope R* is listening.
